ATLANTA -- A lawyer for Reese Witherspoon says the actress has pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge resulting from a heated confrontation with a state trooper in Atlanta.
Municipal Court of Atlanta Deputy Solicitor Ronda Graham said in a statement Friday that Witherspoon entered the plea and paid a $100 fine, resolving the case.
Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright said earlier Friday that the department has released video from a state trooper's dashboard camera that captured the confrontation and Witherspoon's arrest. (See the video in the player above.)
The footage shows Witherspoon asking the trooper, "Do you know my name?" and then adding, "You're about to find out who I am."
The actress has apologized for her behavior.
